DALBY. '[from oub ows correspondent.] April 13. We have been, enlivened during the week by the presence of a Star Dramatic Gompany and the Premier Ventriloquist of ;the World, -each devoting two -nights to the amusement of the . public. The former consisted of Mr. Morton Tavares and Miss Suttees and Company, from Brisbane, who played to • very fair houses. The performance of Mr. E. D. Davies was very amusing and enjoyable, and as a ventriloquist he really seems entitled to the honour Jie lays claim to. He had good houses, but not so good as the entertainment deserved. He has promised to • give an entertainment next Monday evening for the benefit of the Benevolent Fund here, wliich is at present our substitute -for a local hospital, and liis liberality is most ■worthy of commendation. This fund, which-is worked by a committee, was originated by the'members of the Church of England, and is sustained by volun tary contributions, juror's fees, <fce., and any person, of whatev...

ROMA,' SATURDAY, APRIL 2 —iKmxm Amongst other advantages which were^pro-^ mised us -when the . present Ministry oamV into office, was that of a vigorous effort at economy in the management of the public service. We were always, to have, if not a natural surplus, at least one arising from the restriction of the Government, expenditure^ within the revenue of the colony; and that would not only have been of some serviceby way of example, but would. have hail "some-5 what the form of novelty. r We_se&m, tow-;' ever, to be going on the old beaten track getting in a good deal and spending, more^f and now the revenue is beginning to looit? rather declining, the outlay; seems ■ onAhe in crease.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 April 1875

MISCELLANEOUS. The Bdgian Times says the Tribunal do Jus tice at Mons was lately tlie scene of au affair which was rather uncomfortable for the judge and others present. A bankrupt was being examined as to the genuineness of his statement of accounts, and the " Procureur du Roi" liinted that he had made away with some of liis pro perty. This so enraged the individual that he immediately drew a revolver from his pocket and took aim at the " Procureur," who made a hasty flight, and then at the judge, who followed the example of the "Procureur." In lialf-a nunute -the whole court was cleared ; the bank rapt followed the example of the others, and has not been heard of since. Doubts begin to be expressed pretty freely in England as to whether high breeding has not al ready been cultivated to excess. It appeared to be admitted on all hands that shorthorn cattle, for in stance, liave decreased in size, while it seems also certain that the fecundity of these highly-bred ani mals is not so ...

ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Australasion.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 April 1875

ENGLISH NEWS. (From the. Australasian.) The coolness between the Governments of Russia and Great Britain, consequent on the refusal of the latter to take part in the Brussels Conference, grows more and more, to judge by the tone of the Russian newspapers. Evidently the nod lias been given to the inspired editors to abuse England for thwarting the benevolent schemes of the Emperor Alexander. The anger of Russia is chiefly due to the fact, that the smaller powers are inclined to follow the lead of England in this matter. In fact, except Russia, Austria, and Germany, there is no other power in Europe which shows any zeal for the formula tion of war. It would be strange, indeed, if it were otherwise. The interest of every non-mili tary and pacific nation is, in this matter, directly opposed to the interest of the larger warlike nations.. The former, having no conquests to make, and abhorring war, may, perhaps, claim to be the better judges of what humanity and civi lization require. It ...

FRANCE AND BISMARCK. (From, the Queensland Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 24 April 1875

FRANCE AND BISMARCK. (From, the Queensland Times.) We cannot help agreeing wdtli the Courier that the primum mobile Lb Prince Bismark, and tliat_ his ultimate aim is, so to speak, to annihilate 1 France as a European Power. Now when we" state this so roughly and rudely, the feelings of* an unreflecting reader must be shocked; but if he follow bs for a few moments perhaps he may not after all very much censure this astonishing tac tician, .statesman, and soldier. For a thousand years and more lias France been the nucleus of mortal strife in Europe. Voltaire in trenchant language styled his countrymen " a cross between the tiger and the monkey," and the phrase seems; almost the utterance of inspiration. For the monkey is the incarnation of sprightliness and -fun, jand tbe tiger is the embodiment of pure ferocity. • What, then,is the issue of this hybrid production'? This : a reveller in vliat they termed " the game of war"—the. game (that is, the amwienvent; from its birth in Iceland ...
